The century-old

Evanston farmhouse was demolished to make way for development.  Looking to save a few foundation bricks as

keepsakes, Mark Evanston stumbled upon his great-grandfather’s long-lost gold

cache, along with his great-grandfather’s monetary research.

After word spread

about the gold discovery, U.S. Marshals soon arrived with a warrant to seize it,

saying the great-grandfather failed to turn in his gold as commanded in 1933 by

President Roosevelt.

Mark began studying

his great-grandfather’s legal writings to compliment his own research to aid

their defense.

When the U.S.

Treasurer admitted the validity of Mark’s research during a deposition, prosecutors

dropped the lawsuit & returned the family’s gold. 

After announcement

that the U.S. Treasurer was resigning for personal reasons, an investigative

reporter began looking into the story.

Sinister parties took

drastic action to prevent publication of Mark’s research, kidnapping him and

blowing up his home. 

With Mark’s abduction,

the former treasurer who had spoke only intermittently with the reporter opened

up and told her story.  With his rescue,

the reporter wrote a prize-winning story with a happy ending, bringing

nationwide attention to Mark’s research. 

One family’s loss of

personal history helped America regain hers, clearing the path for the United

States of America to again become the bright Beacon of Liberty in a world all

too full of darkness and despair.

Read Bald

to discover how America’s fundamental principles have been

turned upside-down for 150 years.
